New Delhi, 11 Sep: A trucker from Rajasthan paid a penalty of Rs 1.41 lakh after being caught for overloading by the enforcement wing of Delhi transport department, an official said.


The truck, having a Rajasthan registration number, was caught by the enforcement team on Thursday, the transport department official.


The driver paid the penalty of Rs 1,41,700, at Rohini court on Monday, he said.



Hefty fines worth thousands have made headlines in the past few days. On Monday, a truck driver in Odisha was fined over Rs. 80,000 for violating several traffic rules, reported.


Even Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had admitted that he had been fined for speeding on the Bandra-Worli sea link in Mumbai.


The new rules - which brand common offences like the use of cellphone while driving, jumping traffic lights and driving on the wrong lane-came into effect last week.


Under the new rules, the fine for driving without a seat-belt has been increased 10 times from Rs. 100 to Rs. 1000. Using cellphones while driving can attract a fine between Rs. 1,000-5,000 - up from Rs. 1000.


For drunk driving, the fine has been hiked from Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 10,000. Speeding has a penalty anywhere between Rs. 1,000 - Rs. 2,000.


In case of any road offence by underage drivers, the guardian or owner of the vehicle will be held guilty. The penalty will be Rs. 25,000 along with three years in jail and the registration will be cancelled.
